We’ll have periods of showers and t-storms to end the week and start the weekend with heavy rain possible.  As storms develop late in the day Thursday, we’ll also need to watch for possible strong to severe storms with strong wind gusts. As storms move through Thursday night, they will likely produce heavy rain which could lead to localized flooding by Friday morning.  Storms will be on and off through Saturday with overall rainfall totals expected to come in at 2-5″ with highest amounts north of Corpus Christi. Rain chances decrease Saturday evening with drier weather Saturday night into Mother’s Day. There is still a chance of a shower or thunderstorm on Mother’s day but it does look like a drier day. Temperatures will still be quite warm Thursday reaching the upper 80s but the rain will cool us down into the upper 70s Friday to near 80 Saturday. Sunday will be the warmest day of the weekend reaching the low to mid-80s.

Tonight: Low clouds and patchy fog with lows in the mid to upper 70s. Sprinkles or a brief shower are possible.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the low 80s at the beaches to the upper 80s well inland with southeast winds at 14-20, gusting to 25 mph. There is an increasing chance of t-storms toward evening and overnight.

Friday: Periods of showers and t-storms, some with heavy rain. Highs will stay in the upper 70s.

Saturday: Showers and t-storms are likely, tapering off by evening and ending. Highs will reach the low 80s.

Sunday:  There is a slight chance of t-storms but much of the day looks dry and warm with highs in the low to mid 80s.
